but america and bauer's and. it was while making a web documentary fall to the you know about female genital mutilation that i realize how deeply rooted it is in many cultures including my own. i have family and friends who have been through it but it's not something you talk about. as a child i attended a close relatives gathering after she was caught. it was then that i wondered have i been copped. to my relief my mother told me that she chose not to. when i think about the severe health risks involved in f g m a contact but wonder. why does this practice continue in so many countries. and what would it take for to start with and it was. and how do some manage to change my own health attitudes
towards cutting while still preserving their own culture. you know and then there are more personal questions like whether my mother has been cut. i'm determined to find out more about the different reasons why f. jam continues and to understand better what's needed to end it. i've come to somaliland because together with the rest of somalia it has the highest. female genital mutilation in the world. is banned in most countries but here it's still legal. in somaliland children mostly caught between the ages of six and eight.
but. after come to the afghans of our geisha the capital to meet a traditional cutter. has been cutting girls for over forty years around twenty five a day a tap peak. how many girls have you got what you look about and what type of cuts have you performed on the girls and i couldn't follow why entire leg. literally yeah. yeah and this italy good new chorus. done by the time i. said the hell out so would you for. now q so know why entire this week so little of say hey yeah i will also tell you.
no rush owes me the most common cotton somaliland the chorus the most severe pharaonic one what do you do this for oh how is my rock a shelf and. so i put it in the closet. because. you don't you the knife my. ass so i am. telling you how the war on his i don't know what i want. just friends. so i can so and i can so and i can you show me how do you determine. how big the hole should be that you leave. this is how big the opening is only this but. and you're supposed
to urinate from this and when you're a teenager mr asian go through this whole. over ninety percent of girls in somaliland are cut by traditional cotton. unlike most have no medical training. most girls and women here have had the for rooney and i want to know the consequences. i'm a big the senior midwife at the local hospital. you have a really beautiful thank you very much she was born in somalia on earth moved to freedom as a result of the civil war. one thousand nine hundred nine i decided to come back to move something for most people because i most needed here how have you been involved in the fight against. places which will help those who have
fibro fibro to say too much. which is which form is the collective blood. the blood if the species theory small the ministership cannot go out or if the mantle in the ghetto gets them in a station there will be something left in the uterus this will form the tamasha this becomes bigger people will say this she has. a baby in her stomach so the doctor takes out this and that there will be ok. i have help from the megan maternity hospital in arkansas. and. i want to live it was priceless we're going to see who said that it was. two days a week and of counselors coming out educational outreach work in the community.
or had a love affair all of them a good lawyer. or from. then we were you given. my life and my money. was there how had i knew that i am a child. that i really actually. what i was. once you discover how stories with the counselors. she's eighteen and pregnant with her first charge. she's had to fire on a car. question
they still hold on with the suturing and if g.m. is special the grandmothers are very very close are they are there they will look leave it there was a lady who had three girls she came to me at the hospital i told her go back to the home and see i did the operation she is very killer for describing mother when the guests are going to the toilet toilet she goes after them she listen is the most of their urine oh because when the girl is circumcised there's nonis with their with how do you want it because it is like a drug this could be all she cried she said all my daughter gets out of the unity like a boys what you did you did nothing do you think that eventually people will abandon this eventually but didn't take time.
as i watch these young people at a wedding reception i wonder how many of the men would be willing to marry an uncut woman in the future. for saying a local journalist posted an afghan message on social media i was curious to know why i did the facebook update of where you said some men believe f.d.m. deduces a woman's sexual desire they say this increases her appeal what made you write this i want to talk because it's problem for us. to say against the down human.
of the goddess a human in our not right when you get my do you want to my family of cup or uncut uncut ok are you married you know you want to be someone who is cut down on top. who you really. should target some of. the other kind of. my heart in live and grow your own little hospital and. it's all that i in a lot of time which is to. i'm a woman. i come from a culture that also practices that i'm not the cup. i know other women based on what other women have told me that is there is no there is no good in it if they tell you this is hurting us this is literally killing us and we need to stop we do then listen. to the camilla.
the dog whistle. i'm surprised that a young man should feel so strongly about holding on to this tradition when so harmful . if ever g.m. is to end changing men's attitudes will be essential. to have not done university hospital collects detailed information on trends in female cutting. medicare since two thousand and two all antenatal patients are asked what kind of cuts have had and if they intend to cut their daughters. this is rare. to see a woman who is. in two thousand and two ninety seven percent of female
patient had undergone the pharaonic cut. most intended the thing for their daughters. but that has changed there's an improvement in the tire. and the return to the other having entire one term to which they calls. it a risk getting cut. one is the one. tip but tied to a dick at a half of the troops we know or cuts doesn't have any benefits. i just. want to my friend dr drew introduces me to a friend who's at the hospital on a postnatal liver birth order days ago so there are interesting bits of the circuit and stuff. of the midwife and know the harmful
effects of for only cutting from passing experience. something else all. the time. so if you. really want to you're in late i can't. close. my for that if secondly you are coward while you talk. the festival the way i feel in that sixteen year. demonstration secondly. i feel. bad you don't get to see this problem this is. the same circle communication i feel when i see linda took over creation when america. did go for the cut and never fucking that to me. fred if it. did you feel any resentment towards your mother and your
grandmother but to my mother she heard the question. as i'm leaving somalia i feel privileged to have met a woman who share the stories with me. but i'm overcome with emotion as i realize virtually every women here have been caught. and what it actually means. i've always known about the numbers and the facts and the figures but when you come face to face to all women who've gone through it it seems like the woman who have to endorse this and the children after indoors as you go through cycles of pain. for what. has happened to so many women and girls like my mom.
i'm so happy that. i don't know why she didn't come. but i'm so grateful. because my life would have been so much different because to feel good. over the go through the pain. to go through that and then not to be able to do something that it's a good god given thing to peek. you can't pee. and then your premise to ration and then when you have to have sex you don't enjoy it and it's like painful. and then you have to give birth and then it just continues. i'm so grateful that. i didn't go through that and when i meet. those women who have to go through it.
i've come to kenya to find out more about a totally different culture. but over forty tribes here with diverse cultures and traditions. the majority don't practice a cuts at all. but several including the masai cutting have been a centuries old tradition until recently. today meeting twenty eight year old nice and getting. myself managed to talk to me rather kate f.e.m. and have village of my young not. traditionally
for the messiah cutting is a rite of passage marking the transition from girlhood to womanhood usually between the ages of mine and fourteen. the ritual involves some. he lost his release because of what i used to see gas even if they're trying to be strong but you can see that deafening a lot of us are leading. this community nice with the only gun in her village who refused to be cut. off my classmates who are from this community all of them undergoing. and they didn't they were not able to get they have to find a husband for you. so right now almost all of them have three four five children and a. what's your name my name is our what a beautiful name have they been
a second thought. no they have been fact i'm saved how do you feel about not being caught. so what would you like to do when you grow up. ok thank you lauren. as a result of nice's determination to end f.e.m. no young girl has been cut here since two thousand and twelve. my thigh and a patriarchal society. and i first had to persuade the young warriors calderon's to help and the practice. recruiting douglas the leader of them runs was a beginning. what did you do nice to make them change their opinion about their adolescence was their first cousin to accept my walk the resistance was there from all over but then again i had and i've actually because when i go to them i'll go
with someone like that glass so i'll make sure that he talks before i talk so what did you do to persuade them around in the community. it was very hard for us to conform to the boys because be say that they can not. because even god is not sometimes aids she's not a woman then we need an example of some of the dead that we have seen in the community they said ok it's true and let's forget it i think it took more than five want them just to accept it now we decided to come up with some time until we came up and let the parade go by said if the pentagon from this community and we want them to upgrade to become a woman we bless them then with a look at the same cow that we celebrate hold together but we didn't cut so that's what we've come up with.
douglas bring some of his friends are morons to meet me. yeah we mix of might it be more than ok i don't mind it more and do you know what actually happens when i cut you know get along get what you call your hair and i'm very sorry and i would approve it and i wouldn't allow your loving anyone i got. i don't know i am what you. don't know. that i will you know when you. want to. and i know i'm sure with some around a graphic video over to you don't go with a knife. you know what i did that.
we were. going to sing how do. you want to learn that we're going to do you have a daughter. how would you feel if someone said she needed to be cut and that we were going. well i think it was one of their powerful tools who'd been using. them with the issues of female genital mutilation and there was another home very persuasive incentive for the young warriors. when you see it as a moron as we talk and talk about six you see most of the mortar rounds out of most of the men they say if they sleep with a gun is very sweet insects now that's what also contains most of them what i have to say we don't need. so ok. but. meeting the messiah in a minute gives me hope. if one woman can change attitudes in one village
forests. mostly empty. brings international before the illusion of a thriving metropolis and the many. chinese dream of a witness documentary at this time on al-jazeera. however i first of all in london with the top stories on al-jazeera a diplomatic dispute between washington and i'm correct is intensifying with turkey issuing a detention warrant for second u.s. consulate worker the turkish lira has dropped sharply since both countries suspended visa services for each other's nationals speaking on an official visit to

fleeing violence in mammals rakhine state in august or than sixty people drowned when two boats capsized last month the international committee of the red cross says it will reduce its operations in afghanistan after seven members of its staff were killed there this year six died in an attack on a convoy in february and last month a physiotherapist was shot dead by one of her patients and other four workers have been abducted the red cross says it will not be leaving the country or together spain's deputy prime minister has warned that the central government will act on any declaration of independence by castle and regional authorities are warning comes ahead of a catalan parliamentary vote for independence planned on tuesday which spain says is illegal she's being supported by spain's socialist leader pedro sanchez who says his party or back the government if it decides to take action. and those headlines
are back in twenty five minutes with a full hour of news that he stay with us al-jazeera correspondent continues next for why. the north west of kenya is home to a tribe named practiced f.d.m. for centuries that are too. dumb to let your son who's devoted her life to ending if she am in her own country. she's married with two young children. in the last twenty eight years she's one of the few women offer age in this county who haven't been cut. mine was really a matter of escape or turpin is that i witnessed stage of the cut that kids are not allowed to witness as
a young girl i was only eleven years old and this community indian is performing two stages this one first stage which is just a slate cut. yeah that's done in public with the presence of men and women and young girls and he young boys and this year yes we see it but they just you know like a slight cut just immediately after the first day that women are taken to and then that are taken to a secluded place like a bush so we sneaked in and what i just saw on the second stage was so shocking my cousin was laying down there in a pool no blood yes and women were pinning her down in her dimitrios lockup completely you know there's one of us who really butchering like you know how do you cut because of me. i was expecting it not to do this just that yeah but she was really doing this you know yes with a knife yes and she was screaming but us claims were being covered by the women singing and you know the trying to to to cover her screams as she was helpless what
was left to their horse just like red flesh yes i still can't believe that this is something that we're still debating about. honestly. it was this traumatic experience that made don't refuse to become a motivated how to set up a charity to help and i feel. we're heading to the village of sandwich with one hundred sixty girls are preparing for an attorney to right of passage ceremony. we just saw me to be lindsay because intelligible to us and to know that they decided to. have. the trip to sandwich from them to leave the house takes two and a half hours through mountain passes on bumpy roads. to school and this is good. for the welcome when we get makes it worse or.
in the pocket culture cutting traditionally involves a celebration in which the whole community takes part. the girls are to have sing their dances for the alternatives harmony. is real life come in it was beautiful i don't expect to see this difficult committed love and seeing and hearing we want people to know that we love our culture enough we love every bit of it only but from the cut yes there's this with the feeling that it's ok there's almost nothing to put in here. the teachers are from the same community. the girls receive four days of lessons before their graduation day. and i. don't know about. today learning exactly what i've jam involved and the health
complications using models about the madonna no no no no no no no no. no i laid there were that you were. going to deliver someone to become mustard. you know when you're not good but i'm a guess and i give up. the ball and what. doesn't look good i. got a three. when you have been caught you put into seclusion for one month whereby your thought how to become a good ways how to treat your husband how to cook so we do the opposite we bring the girls in here we teach them like their children's rights you know it to them about health implications of their so it's basically same same thing without the car to but a different teaching because they want these girls to be important people in the society rather than at my own don't feel i'm her colleagues have had to work hard
to change the attitudes of parents. in the pocket community a cut girl can bring significant economic advantage to a poor family. a girl as models. very into in terms of house and i'll tell you that if for this community the price is quite high especially the girl is young and cut what's the potential that it has to older men because they bring a good number of culls as much as many of articles because of poverty situation they're tending to their girls when they're still young and then they married them off and they get there is quick quick quick quick you know well so much an uncut girl worse but on catgirl you can actually be given away at her for a price. years back for they might even give you away for free because they just want to get rid of you because you're a body and you know. that
tomorrow's graduation the girls will sing and dance to some composed by a local musician lucky to. have a personal reason for wanting to. work in you think has done. more it. has done it in the. style of. no one helped or my. leg but i want to nick he will gnaw. at the guy. he said to. me. what was the name of your sister clementina clinton how old was she living in. government and more local moran.
illegal in kenya since two thousand and one. around here have been largely ineffective. around his village and their villages around. most of them still being cut i mean we have not been able to reach out to everybody this is a big big big land you know it's a big county. i find out from them to know that one of her younger sisters run away to be with friends. i know them to last few years but i wonder if the older generation a mother and grandmother supported her sister's decision she takes me to meet them

that was. to find out that some of the girls have made great sacrifices to be here today. and the many different here today. is just you hear no one else from the village. so that means they would become. here today. they're not here. and here just along with. let's go and join. with another girl who catches my son. even last impression on me.
the presence of dignitaries here is a testament to them till the success. of important. the vast majority of people a christian in the graduation salmon and with the blessing. patterns and elders stand behind the goals that belong to that religious. you are was wonderful and touching to see all the community leaders and the parents especially the father standing around the young girls symbolically it was like saying we have your back we have your back with support you and with
a forty decision not to be caught it was wonderful to see. just wonderful. i wanted to meet. alice a girl i know to starting a family she ran away from him after her father began beating her mother believing she was responsible for a little futile to be cut. you know get away august. you know. what you need. to give. what i knew. to men and. women all who don't live.

year history you know your money. from then into last till then in free books won't there in muncie who's almost say it is so impossible we feed our entire barnett or do whole a public arena wonderful product into all. life or to me for your money then they have gotten control of their own account rightly or clean no nasa share in our system and it did have a lot of your if you are do you not are horns protestant who were to leak or under are mostly mad men we only hope. rub out of that the heart in your team your real bar exam on their secret heart may really you want that you are the thirty say it or. face into body all three criteria to three other feels
abandoned earth for full truth at the heart of its motto be i'm a little harder afrikaans problem you had last mc yeah. just order and man for your mirror o'meara india and pakistan kurdistan iraq latin america and. america because i was given the guardian when he would put up a normally taboo subject. you know being in the congo are the kind of out of two multiple of. school no we didn't that we hadn't uplifted over to my la concha through the how did you manage the how do you hope the months when all those men. get in their car young far out. there. have been at the grove. that's.
what i want candy and that's all i'm addicted daughter once i'm a mum across thank them that i wouldn't hurt a. villain to proton them and might be harder on them and i think they make a mirror and saw for download on four hundred million or a flick smuggled t m m doesn't go far from the end of them so it was going to throw it out to be with. no men there. or that therefore this can't stop us so the whole year called scope and their approach. of the only they can just sit there so many tales got the no. protests of the day dot com there were forty i should get off the ship man you've all got to pay for it i think this court did have what it the heart into . that at seven but i. also have always known i'm not because i never asked my mother why i left him is
not a subject to discuss but today we're going to talk about it. it took a lot of convincing to persuade my mother to take part in this film. my father and sister refused due to the taboo and that's the subject. to the person in question i need to ask my mother that makes me uncomfortable. so i start with the easy one. listen i had a dollar. machine which knows the machine we are near which now could wish there had been i would add. the i need to come in and rule which mark to love and that's a deal where. the tradition is in control who identified that with a gun and both voted like the last out of oh no not at all like announced but i had i would rather like an individual to start by a man must have a market than a market that them in and around the. machinery i'm sure what i would what on the
guy that's to get me but i have now got. a lot of air travel from what i had to had the only car not going to the market with a lot of the mark i'm going to when i'm in the home look i thought it what does an open mind about toxic. corners and hunger look for a lot of stuff to get the launch of the shop off. and sacking whatever were. right for us so i don't buy that the fuck it i would be a lot how to manage having all been out on hard or fast out and about the fact that a good scheme not me yes. really only risky enough for lardy a come on house i love it for thank you and i from the right had much to live long or do you know england forgot best the victims from a in my heart if i me i'm do
have guilty and on the outside and far into much of it over you what i'm talking about so i did a fifth after ten london and my vision my fifteen at the bus come america. women would get a mother i did not know my mother got handed. that i need to lady di d. you need to george's wide id and into matter of fame thing i don't know mom and mom must. i feel such a relief after speaking with my mother i know now that she did not endure the worst form of g.m. . and i feel proud of my parents' decision to end the practice which meant that i did not endure it and in time neither when my daughter.
this journey cements my belief that as g.m. will end one day change will come but it must come from within. from those who understand that the richness and uniqueness of culture does not depend on traditions harmful to woman. a family business handed down from generation to generation but when this funeral director retires will his son continue the tradition but don't think it was actually before just like i don't feel like i was upset over a difficult choice for an al-jazeera producer caught between two worlds well it's really fight tending to the death of the living get better an intimate portrait of an industry most encounter only fleetingly al-jazeera correspondent death in the family at this time.
